Raise Your Kitchen Counter in 4 Seconds
Posted January 16th, 2010 @ 3:39 pm PST

Kitchen counters? Problematically short. (They should start at about your elbow crease. Not wrist.) Enter these genius 2-18" chopping blocks-on-legs, which you can simply stick on top of your counter for easy cutting and prepping. Smart.

Tall Girls: The Movie!
Posted January 16th, 2010 @ 1:01 pm PST

Fellow tall lady and genius film director Edda Baumann von Broen, 6'3", has put her two talents together to create "Tall Girls", a wonderful documentary all about tall female life. And, hint hint, you may recognize a certain someone in the film. Edda just finished the film and is hitting the film festival circuit; in the meantime, here's a preview.

The Photoshoot
Posted January 2nd, 2010 @ 1:24 pm PST

My New Year's resolution is to help tall ladies worldwide find the clothes that make them feel good. Affordably. I don't need to tell you that this can be a tall order--which is why Im thrilled to tell you that I'm partnering with the best tall clothing store in the universe, Long Tall Sally.

I've never been much of a clothes horse. But Long Tall Sally just came to America, and since receiving my first box of clothes last week, it's become clear that my lack of fashionista status was only because I didnt have any. I immediately made my roommate do a photoshoot of my favorites:

#1: The Dress
Posted January 2nd, 2010 @ 1:22 pm PST

I'm madly in love with this dress. I may never take it off long enough to wear anything else. Its one of those comfortable, cant-go-wrong dresses: it works with a cardigan for meetings, fancy shoes for parties, and, um, wine stains (on New Years they miraculously blended). Genius.

#2: My Ploof!
Posted January 2nd, 2010 @ 1:20 pm PST

Though Long Tall Sally refers to this as the Sophy Feather Shrug, it will forever be my Ploof (sometimes pronounced, floof). It dresses up anything. Jeans, formal dress, whatever. If you only have one formal accessory, make it this.

#3: Snuggle Hoody!
Posted January 2nd, 2010 @ 1:18 pm PST

I'm wearing this outfit as I type. About the green corduroys: I was worried about ordering pants online, given that I can be anywhere from a size 4 (if I dont breathe) to a 12 (if lasagna has been around recently). Also, I like to touch clothes before I by them. But the whole process, I have to say, was a lot more fun than store changing rooms, which usually turn into a mass grave of too-short pants and tears. I ordered piles of clothes in all sizes, tried 'em on, and sent back the third that didnt fit (gratis!), done. And the whole process took an hour total.

My facial expression here is so weird here that I wouldnt want it to overshadow the tunic. Which is cute.

Lets face it: us tall folk have been experiencing a centuries-long epidemic of freezing wrists. It frankly never occurred to me that faux-fur was an option, because it seems to be the domain of the squat. No more: It's so cozy!

The Brits are into tunics (Long Tall Sally is London-based) and I think theyre onto something: they're feminine and flattering on long bodies, yet you still get to wear jeans. Perfect for work. Or spontaneous photoshoots with an end table.

Mabel cannot be found in the Long Tall Sally catalog. She is, however, equally smitten.
